last semester i learned lot of things including different type of disaster this includes the volcanic eruption, storms, earthquake and more i also learned about drugs how to determine and what does it cause but for me its No To Drugs. Drug abuse at the workplace is a serious issue in our society and will become even more serious in the future. In phillipines drug and alcohol abuse is already a grave workplace problem. Employees usually don’t leave their drug and alcohol abuse problems at the door when they enter the workplace. Companies have to face problems like the increase of accidents, medical claims, the workers tardiness and absentees, selling drugs to co-workers or stealing from employers. Drug testing at work can be one way to implement a more efficient work environment and control or monitor such difficulties.They also had random drug testing were they would pick a certain percentage of the employees and randomly choose people to take the test. In conclusion these drug tests make the workplace more productive, safer, and overall better for the environment. i also learned lot of things from the topic citizenship on the phillipines. The documentaries that we have watched show that the Philippines are encountering many problems in state of education especially on rural areas. The government seems to forget those places because they are the one who are experiencing many problems especially in lack of teachers and school supplies. Also, the buildings of the school needs more repair or should I say it needs to be change and have a new and a better building. The students in those schools are also suffering regarding to the distance of the schools they are attending. Also, the students are exposed to early child labor to help their family and because of having a big family; some of them can’t go to high school because of lack of money. Solving these problems is not that easy. Far areas are hard to contact with. Also, it is hard to find teachers who are willing to

    I decided to base my clinical assessment of a movie character on Conrad Jarrett, the lead character of the film Ordinary People. Conrad is seventeen years old and is the only child of Beth and Calvin Jarrett. The Jarrett’s live in the affluent suburb of Lake Forest, Illinois, where Calvin works as a successful tax attorney. The Jarrett’s have just recently experienced a family tragedy, where their eldest son, Buck, drown in a boating accident, while Conrad witnessed the entire event. Six month after the accident, Conrad has become severely depressed, and slit his wrists with a razor blade in a failed suicide attempt. His parents discovered him unconscious in the bathroom, and immediately committed him to a psychiatric hospital. He spent eight months in treatment and has recently returned home, as well as resumed his classes at Lake Forest High School. He is struggling socially, academically, and has a strained relationship with his mother, Beth. Immediately following his discharge, Conrad continues to experience nightmares, and flashbacks to the boating accident in which he watched his older brother die from drowning. He is also experiencing chronic agitation, appetite loss, poor concentration, and avoidance of his former friends and extracurricular activities. When Conrad was receiving treatment, he was initially diagnosed with major depression with agitation, without active suicidal ideation. He attends psychotherapy twice weekly with Dr. Tyrone Berger.…

    The definition of a sense of identity is the condition of being oneself and not another. In Ordinary People, Judith Guest refers to Conrad Jarrett as "A newborn fawn without his mother (46)." Ever since Conrad lost his brother, Buck, in a tragic boating accident, he feels guilty and that he is to blame. He loses his sense of identity, but with the help of Jeannine, Dr. Berger, and Calvin, he is able to reevaluate himself and become an "ordinary person" once again.…

    “Good literature substitutes for an experience which we, ourselves, have not yet experienced.” Even though you don’t experience things in real life you can still learn from the things you read. I agree with this quote because people don’t have to go through life experiences in order to understand what they read. When you read a book you can learn from it without going through the exact situation as the characters go through.…

    THE DEATH OF PHILIP OF MACEDON Amalia Skilton ho caused the assassination of Philip II, King of Macedon from c. 355 to 336 BC? Was it his wife Olympias, his son Alexander, or some other person or group? The answer is critical, for it shapes the modern world’s understanding of Alexander the Great more than does any other issue. Did Alexander exploit conflicts between Macedonians, arranging his father’s death in order to become King, or was he innocent of the crime, creating compromise between ethnic and political factions in Macedon? This paper will answer the question of Philip’s murder with attention to both ancient authors’ claims and their sources, as well as to the arguments of modern writers. It will ultimately lay the blame for Philip’s assassination on the shoulders of Amyntas, Philip’s nephew and the son of King Perdikkas II.1 However, it will disregard neither the motives of the assassin himself, Pausanias, nor the possible complicity of other groups in the crime. Historical Context Despite its prominence in the Hellenistic era, Macedon was considered at best a backwater by Ionians and more southerly Greeks for most of the classical period. At worst, it was a land of barbarians: Alexandros I, an early king, had to submit a pedigree…
